Imagine waking up from a coma to find out that your mother has died, and that your eight year marriage is now over. For Timothy, he had a choice; wallow in depression or rise above. By choosing the latter, his message is a unique one, inspiring others to persevere despite the circumstances.
Timothy: I was in a 8 year marriage. We was in love for many years, until, uh, I got hurt. Got into an accident, came out of a coma, she asked me to come home so we could work on it. The minute I got home she actually kicked me out on the street with no where to go. My mother died at the same--when I woke up out my coma, I found out my mother was dead so now I don't have anybody to go to. You know, and I figured I had my wife so I was going to be alright, but she abandoned me too. But I managed to pull through that because I'm happy with myself. I love me. Now I moved on, I'm happy now, you know, I met somebody else. Actually I met, my first girlfriend, we got back together. You know, because we didn't end, we never ended we just, like, just stopped seeing each other. And of course she moved over here, I moved over here. But we met back up so everything is working out. You know, the feelings are coming back. Everything is even better than what it was before. People are accustomed to their pasts. They live and survive through their pasts. They like the past feelings when they was in love. They're remembering a time when they had a good time, and they feel, without those things, their life is over. What you need to focus on is your future. All those things you had in the past you will have in the future, but it will be much better because you know what to look out for now. And if you look towards that future, and if you love yourself, you would not put yourself or your child or anybody in that predicament, why do it to you, when you love you more than anybody in this world? I'm still friends with the woman who did my dirty because everybody makes mistakes in life, make the wrong choices. All I can do is go out there and find somebody who shares my sentiments in life. That's what I did, and I'm happy right now.
